So Lost has finally come to an end, how did the finale make you feel? From the voices on the internet it sounds like some people are quite divided on the episode and even dogging the series as a whole. Well fear not. I am not here to try and convince you otherwise, but if I happen to pull you into my camp that is fine by me. So where do I fall with my thoughts on the epic finale? Well I was pretty damn satisfied on almost every level.
As a television program, the finale, was thrilling, tense, funny, affecting, romantic, and sad. It got my heart racing and my tear ducts rolling. Whether it was Jack striking fear into FLocke, those same two’s epic fight on the cave cliff, or every awakening in the sideways world, I could go on and on with the wonderful moments in the finale. The pacing was impeccable, the effects were top notch, and they did a great job at creating symmetry with the series in this final episode. All the lines they brought back worked and felt right, they didn’t drag out the final confrontation with Smokey, and let the peril of the Island serve as the final act, of this arc, of the Island’s long, long, history.
